Entry Process

The Motor Trader Industry Awards are now open for entries!

For 2022, we have 26 retail categories for franchised dealers; including awards with a focus on customer care, skills training, business excellence and sales performance. Digital is of increasing importance for motor retailing, and this is reflected in award categories for websites, digital initiatives and social media.
